Trump walked back his comments on Russian Federation the day after his appearance with Putin, though he later cast doubt on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 race.
Trump rejected the criticism sparked by his Helsinki news conference with Putin and said he misspoke in a series of flip-flops over the summit.
However, Putin never accepted Trump's invitation to meet in Washington.
The president provoked an uproar at home with comments during his Helsinki summit with Putin last week that cast doubt on USA intelligence findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

Facing mounting calls to release the details of Trump's closed-door talks with Putin, the U.S. administration stepped up its damage control operation, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo going before Congress to defend his boss.
"Why does he do those things?"
The U.S. Congress tends to tread lightly with Central Intelligence Agency directors, and Mike Pompeo was no exception. Corker asked. "Is there a strategy to this or what is it that causes the president to purposely create distrust in these institutions?"

Democrats also said they were stunned to hear Mr. Pompeo suggest the president's words don't amount to official government policy.
